5. The article states that；“immigrant and aboriginal populations are slowing down the aging population", what reasons in the article justify this statement?
There are two reasons which provided in the article justified this statement. First, there is 40% increase of life expectancy of Aboriginal older adults and child represent one-third of total Aboriginal peoples since 1996. In other words, the Aboriginal life expectancy and the Aboriginal birth rate are both higher than the overall population; as a result, this group of people is much younger than the overall Canadian population. Second, the primarily consist of immigrant population is young working age which between 25-44 years old and only has minority ratio of people in the old working age of 45-65 years old. To sum up, the Aboriginal and immigrant population are younger than the overall Canadian population, and they are contributing power to slow down the aging population of Canada.
